Home Guard Band
Another great image here sent to us by Harry Smith.. he tell me this photo is of the Home Guard band formed he thinks in 1941 with the 36 Ches. HQ Company. Harry's father is the Sergeant. He was a regular soldier in 1914 and part of the old contemptables. Harry is not sure where it was taken but it was in Hyde. Harry tells me, that at least for a period this band rehearsed in the Cheshire Cheese Market St. Hyde, in an upstairs room as he recalls. Hopefully there's someone who may know one of the individuals. Harry says the Colonel was O.L.Jacks, who was the big boss of Ashton Bros. and lived in the "White House" at the side of Flowery Field church.
